roles off and on since the 1980s and was a campaign for john mccain in his failed bid for the presidency. wolf? >> lisa, thank you very much. we'll be anxious to see what the task force comes up with, what the president says in the state of the union address before congress. thank you. lisa, thank you very much for that report. >>> the obama administration may be stepping up its push for some form of new gun control legislation. but will the president be able to rally the support of congress? most importantly, the american public at the same time? we'll dig deeper with our chief political analyst gloria borger. here's what the president recently said on "meet the press." i'll play the clip. >> we're not going to get this done unless the american people decide it's important. and so this is not going to be simply a matter of me spending political capital. one of the things that you learn, having now been in this office for four years, is the old adage of public opinion. without public opinion there's not something you can't do and wut it there's very little you can't get done in this town
is going to have an easier fight. but there are questions about it. i mean, john mccain who was tortured himself when he was a p.o.w., has raised real questions about brennan's role in the bush administration supporting enhanced interrogation. today, he put out a statement saying he wanted to know, quote, what role he played in the so-called enhanced interrogation progras while serving at the cia during the last administration. i would also point out, wolf, that john mccain is on the same side as the liberal civil rights group the aclu in this. they are raising the same kinds of questions. even though in the past, brennan has said that he opposes these enhanced interrogation techniques. >> we'll watch these confirmation hearings every step of the way. >> should be interesting, both of them. >> low flying helicopters have people in some of the country's biggest cities asking questions. the answers have to do with preparations for a possible terrorist attack. using radioactive dirty bombs. >>> plus, before we get to that, we have some new details emerging about the colorado theater shootin
john mccain introducing it and he wasn't trusted by the hispanic community. they didn't look at him as being authentic. i think cube yeo can make a difference this time and pairs with ted crews and obama could do himself a favor if he enlists the help of these border state governors. guys like rick perry, susan martinez and jan brewer and marco rubio, as well. one thing he is not doing in his proposal that he is probably going to unveil later this year, there is no mention of border security at all. >> arthel: okay, because that is going to veer off. you touched on something that i want to bring santita in on this. that president obama should reach out to some of the border governors like perry and regardless of party. what do you say about that? >> i said at the top of segment they come here legally. where are the borders really? of course, we're for the border governors they have an interest in protecting borders but we also have to look at our intake. if you have people that visit this country who just come here and stay and homeland security can't track them, come on, what is go
from moody's, a former john mccain advisor and create jobs and a republican like mark zandi was shut down. >> jamie: does that make sense? julie, take a step back, let's be bipartisan. does that make sense, why would republicans stand in the way. >> thank you. >> jamie: why would anybody stand in the the way of putting the american public back to work, puts more money back in the economy. >> why would the republicans threaten to default our government from the debt obligations, why would the republicans do that. >> because, it's because-- >> their right wing and they don't want the president-- listen, you had mitch mcconnell the senate leader essentially saying that his role was to make sure that president obama was a one-term president. >> and now-- >> julie, washington d.c. has a spending problem. we just cannot continue to give washington d.c. a blank check and the bottom line is this: when nancy pelosi was in control, when democrats were in control of the house and senate, the president got all of his policies through. and it's like deja vu, groundhog's date all over again and we
not seen it, either. we're going to talk about it. cia is in the middle of this controversy. john mccain and a couple of others hated water boarding. water boarding is a part of this story when the movie basically says from the water boarding at guantanemo bay they did pick up clues and names and names led to names and it all led to osama bin laden. what's your take on that? water boarding, gaunt guantanemo. >> i think it's weird that the debate has shifted on the hill from this movie is inaccurate to this movie is a little too accurate. where did you get your information? and i think that's maybe it's just a smoke screen. maybe it's just sort of senators and congressmen throwing up kind of we can have a hearing, we can have an inquiry so they don't have to address the substantive concerns. there are people with stakes in the debate. but most senators and congressmen don't want to talk about torture. >> i think that's right. keith, the cia says another criticism they say is it it was a team effort. not just this one woman. we all buy into that. cia however issued a statement about the wa
senator john mccain and some in the oscar academy are taking issue with the film's depiction of torture in the hunt for osama bin laden. >> in op-ed, david clenen urged people not to vote for the film. he writes this, i cannot vote for a film that makes heroes of americans who commit the crime of torture. the sony co-chairman says "zero dark thirty" does not advocate torture. to not include that part of history would have been irresponsible and inaccurate. >> and on the subject of film, one of hollywood's most iconic movie theaters getting a new name. grauman's chinese theater will now be called tcl theater. money is expected to go towards needed renovations, cultural landmark first opened in the summer of 1927. >>> the oscars are a little more than a month away, but we've got another big show coming up this weekend. the golden globes, hollywood's second biggest night of the year. earlier i spoke with nichelle turner about the show and who's up for awards. >> coming off this week announcement of the oscar nominations, everyone will be looking at how "lincoln" is going to fair. the steve
, john kerry will leave. they mr. only four members of the united states senate, john mccain being the fouferment i mean so what you have in kerry and hagel are two men who have seen war up front and up close, and who have become far more reluctant to deploy americans. they don't talk in the ancient language of swagger how we are going to go in and kick some tail, or anything of the sort like so many of the noncombatants do. so i think that hagel, i think brennan will bring up a discussion. we'll find out how lib ralts, in fact, they really do care about the use of drones in this administration. the seems to have given a pass to president obama, used drones more than president bush ever did and i think the republicans will use it to discuss benghazi but i think will confirmed as well. >> woodruff: both of them. you were talking about a group of loners. what are these choices and what we know so far about the president's white house staff and cabinet say about the president, david. >> it's not exactly great copy for us. they are not the most exciting group, necessarily. they are a g
the nation" bob schieffer will ask john mccain and joe manchin and stanley mccrystal about the president's nominations and the afghan troop drawdown and talk with mayor antonio villaraigoso sunday on "failings the nation" on cbs. >>> chilling new details in britain in the child sex scandal connected to a famous television host. police report claims jimmy savile who died in 2011 committed more than 200 sex crimes over six decades. the youngest victim was just 8 years old. the assault took place in television studios, school hospitals and even a hospice. second report blames police for not doing more to stop sevile. >>> the government is targeting an active ingredient in ambien saying we're taking too much of it. zolpidem, the popular sleep aid, the fda cut the recommended dose in half and says doctors should do the same thing for men. welcome, doctor. >> thank you for having me. >> what is the issue here? >> we've known for a long time this is a help. the government is just concerned with new studies with driving simulators that these drugs are staying in our system muc
of defense, the independent streak. interesting to watch john mccain. mccain part of the group of -- who embraced hagel. vietnam vets together they used to pal around with john kerry and max cleland and chuck rob, vietnam senators but differed in the past few years and there's tension there. mccain's the key person. for brennan, brennan has a weak spot he was pro-cia, waterboarding type of activities, mccain was opposed to that. mccain's in the spotlight the next week. >> talk about women. we've had three major appointments so far, three major suggestions at the moment. kerry, brennan and hagel. we know the treasury secretary's leaving. we haven't had somebody named but there are not a lot of women's names floating around, as potentials. why no more women in the cabinet? >> well, we're just losing two high-profile women in the obama administration, hillary clinton, but also lisa jackson at epa. it is -- seems to me the president's going to want to try to get in his last remaining appointments some women in play. susan rice can stay in at u.n. but you want to get a few more. you might see
select committee on intelligence completed their report recently and you probably saw john mccain and dianne feinstein said the report concludes torture did not work. they say it was a stain on our reputation. it is important that that report is declassified to the public in light of "zero dark 30." it is about the killing of osama bin laden bin laden. i think the movie will do for torture with jaws did for sharks. it will become the public perception of reality and it is a lie. i think that moving makes it doubly important for the senate select committee to report -- to get the report declassified so the public can have a debate on the truth and not this hollywood lie. it is ironic that, to this day, -- the military officer said to reveal names, talking about torture will get you sentenced to prison. committing torture makes you a hero. you've got jose rodriguez and these people who have written books and they are heroes in the eyes of folks that believe that torture works and they are walking free and we're sending somebody to prison for their words and nobody has gone to prison
was there with you i saw the same thing. you've been severely criticized by john mccain. he was here in "the situation room" this week and i interviewed him after that tweet calling you and eric schmidt useful idiots, a term that they used to call americans who represented the communism during the stall lynn regime. >> do you think that the north koreans are going to take governor richardson and mr. schmidt to see one of those? i don't think so. and so what this does, it provides a propaganda kind of success for this four-star general saving americans coming to see us. finally, how many trips has bill richardson taken to north korea and what have been the results of it? >> he's pretty tough. he hated the fact you went there, that the north koreans could use you for propaganda purposes. >> let me tell you what i think i've been able to bring back. i've been able to bring back american soldiers, american hostages, the remains of seven of our warriors from the korean war. i don't know if senator mccain knows about that. i'm surprised at the personal nature of his comments. we weren't used for p
like john mccain, and the idea is you have to continue to invest in a country because we invested all this blood and treasure for all of these years, and it would be wasted. that was the logic of vietnam as well. you can sustain trying to build a nation that many empires have tried and failed before to do so. it's not about karzai anymore. it's not actually about al qaeda. it's not really even about the taliban. it's about pride. it's about the mistakes that have been made and the lives that have been lost. how do you best honor that? >> yeah. >> gail, stay with us, if you can. >>> up next, a preview of "meet the press" with david gregory and "the washington post's" eugene robinson. first bill karins with a check on the forecast. >> we're having our father/son powwow. barnicle is going to control the weather maps. we're going to do the rooerever. >> i'm a high-pressure area. >> yes, you are, hothead. you have to go a little slower. we're confusing people. now we're on saturday already. let's just start with your weekend forecast. you can't go back. that's the problem. foreca as far as
